Actual Knitting Content

Yes. It's true. Today you will see a real finished knitted object. I can't show the last two things I worked on (not yet anyway), but here's one that I finished knitting a couple of months ago. I finally put the last few touches on it and photographed it. It's a choker made of wire and beads, with a ribbon woven through the middle:

And a couple more beauty shots:

I'm writing up the pattern almost as we speak! And when it is finished, I will post it here. :)

In other news, things are ok. Yes, they are. And getting better. Many thanks to my wonderful wonderful friends. Now I have to go before I get all gushy. ;)

Beautiful choker Rosemary. I wish I could wear one. I have so many 'turkey wattles' that the choker would be obliterated. (g)

However,I have 2 granddaughters that would each love one.

*That* is gorgeous! I have quite a bit of wire and beads on hand (went a bit overboard when Venezia was in Knitty), and look forward to this pattern. Lovely work!

I would love the pattern also -- can't wait. It is the nexus of two passions: beading and knitting and beaded knitting!
